Happy Thursday! Today is Day 4 of Savannah Guthrie’s hosting stint. Through 3 days, $49,701 has been raised for the Bowery Mission. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Countries of the World) for Thursday, June 17, 2021 (Season 37, Game 189):
On this country’s National Day, August 15, all 39,000 residents are invited to Vaduz Castle for festivities & drinks
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Matt Walton, a civil servant from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
|Emily White, a public relations specialist from Wilmington, Delaware
|Sarah Reza, a museum program manager from Hyattsville, Maryland (1-day total: $12,801)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Sarah took down a 3-day champion in Katie Sekelsky yesterday. I would say that her best way to improve her chances of victory would be to have a better performance on the signalling device; 26.32% is below-average in that statistic. If that number got to 35%, another 5 chances would certainly be beneficial to her score.
Today’s Clue of the Day for the Alexa sweepstakes: MEDICAL LATIN: On a prescription, B.I.D stands for the Latin phrase “Bis in Die”, meaning the medicine should be taken this many times a day
Clue of the Day correct response: What is 2?
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Liechtenstein is the small Alpine principality situated between Austria to its east and Switzerland to its west. Its capital, Vaduz, sits on the Rhine River overlooking Switzerland. Low corporate tax rates has meant that the principality has gained importance as a European financial center. Vaduz Castle (Schloss Vaduz) is the official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein, a title currently held by Hans-Adam II. His son, heir apparent Alois, acts as regent.
